I love this place. If it wasn't for the expensive prices I don't think I will stay elsewhere. I've stayed in this hotel 4 times since it was first built and I never had a problem with the robbery reported by others. I've become friends with a number of the staff there so I believe its a matter of treating everyone fairly.
Its true that the wall sockets are all Korean 2-pin round plugs and not the standard Philippines 2-pin plugs. However, anyone from Malaysia and Singapore would not have a problem with this unless they had a 3-pin device. The wattage is also slightly higher here than in other hotels to cater for it, and so devices charge alot faster.
The rooms have strong wifi and also comes with adult channels on the cable as standard (but I doubt this was necessary). I've eaten at the restaurant at the lobby and service has always been good and a number of them are long serving staff. There are no lifts to the top floor, which is why I usually stay in the deluxe rooms on the 1st floor. The pool is great for your partners to swim if they stay til the morning. I've seen plenty of Koreans staying here, including normal couples and groups of friends as well as plenty of Indian businessman from Malaysia. This I would say makes up the majority of their customer base.
And to top it off, I once left my passport here at the front desk when leaving for the airport and they very nicely called the pre-arranged taxi to come and take it back before I realized it and that put them on my good books.
